Mozilla Waterfox browser opens but thats all it do in Win 7

September 7, 2016 at 22:41:37
Specs: Windows 7, 8 gb
Waterfox will not load webpages - I am using windows 7 and I thought that after installing waterfox on my laptop ( windows 10 ) and it works perfecty well there, that is would do on the windows 7 desktop but apparantly not. Each time I open the web pages do not load....so I closed , went to firefox and lo and behold....all working ok in Firefox but not in Waterfox. So I uninstalled waterfox...re installed it ( v 48 ) and the exact same thing happend -program opened but web pages would not.

Suggestions would be most welcome

Waterfox is supposed to be a 64 bit browser. Your specs say you have 8 gig of ram so I assume your windows 7 is 64 bit so the problem wouldn't be your windows version.

I found this:

"Waterfox is an unofficial 3rd party version of Firefox. If you use it be aware that quite a few plugins will not work as they are only 32 bit, and some extensions (especially those that have binary components) will not work."

here:

but I can't say for sure if that's the reason for your problems.

Yes I know it is a 64 bit browser and it does work on my Win 10 notebook - and works with the exact same add ons/extention that I use in Firefox on the notebook. It seems stange to say the least that it wont work in windows 7 but works very ok in windows 10

It works fine on my Win 7 64bit system.
Perhaps check your firewall or antivirus if it blocks the browser from sending/receiving Ethernet traffic.

Not blocked in either anti virus or firewall and if it was I would assume that the program would not even open

Firewall does not stop applications but checks incoming (and in most cases outgoing) LAN traffic to known apps. Is "Waterfox" listed in the "Inbound Rules"?

Have you tried to turn off the firewall for a second just to eliminate it from the possible problem list?
